"Mathematics for Society”
On November 24-25, the workshop "Mathematics for Society 2022: Health, Industry and Sustainable Development" was held at our Faculty. The aim of the workshop was to discuss the effectiveness of various advanced tools in industrial mathematics and medical data analysis, especially in the context of the inter-faculty OPT iGEN SANITAS project, implemented at Gdańsk University of Technology under cooperation of five faculties: Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics, Faculty of Chemistry, Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Faculty of Applied Physics and Mathematics and the Faculty of Management and Economics.
The event was also an opportunity to tighten interdisciplinary cooperation between various research centers. In this year's edition, we hosted representatives of the Faculty of Mathematics of the Wrocław University of Science and Technology (Michał Balcerek, PhD, Professor Krzysztof Burnecki, Mateusz Świtała, PhD, Eng. and Professor Agnieszka Wyłomańska) and the Dioscuri Center in Topological Data Analysis operating at the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (Paweł Dłotko, PhD, DSc., and PhD students Davide Gurnari and Niklas Hellmer). Invited lectures were also delivered by Professor Małgorzata Gawrycka (Dean of Faculty of Management and Economics), Professor Aneta Łuczkiewicz (Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Vice-Dean for Cooperation and Development) and Professor Małgorzata Szczerska (Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics, Principal Investigator in OPT iGEN SANITAS project). The talks given concerned i.a. detection of pathogens (including the SARS-CoV-2 virus) and drug residues in wastewater with the use of biosensors, sustainable development goals, selected issues of topological data analysis or mathematical methods of early detection of failures in mining machines. During the workshop, students of Mathematics Dorian Falęcki, Marek Jendernalik, Adrian Stolarek and Patryk Topór talked about the activities of the Mathematics Scientific Club of Gdańsk Tech.
The organizers of the workshop were Professor Małgorzata Szczerska and Professor Grzegorz Graff, Professor Paweł Pilarczyk and Justyna Signerska-Rynkowska PhD Eng. from our Faculty.
